Italy informed about US strikes on Houthis in Yemen few hours before attack

Rome, (UNI) The US informed Italy of the airstrikes on Houthi targets in Yemen a few hours before the attack, Italian Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani said on Friday.

The US and its allies fired more than 100 missiles at Houthi positions in four Yemeni provinces overnight into Friday in retaliation for attacks on commercial shipping in the Red Sea. The Yemeni capital of Sanaa, the key port of Al Hudaydah, and the cities of Sadah and Taizz were all targeted.

We were informed about the attacks this night several hours in advance, but we cannot send troops and take part in military operations without discussion in the parliament since the constitution does not allow this,” Tajani was quoted as saying by Il Sole 24 Ore newspaper.
